The PostgreSQL performance tuning page says this:

"You might also want to configure your kernel to lock shared memory into
RAM and prevent it from being paged out to swap. Use the sysctl setting

This value doesn't appear in NetBSD and I can't find anything that looks
like it does the same thing.  Does NetBSD have some sort of control for
locking shared memory (SYSV) into RAM?
